17 new cases of respiratory virus reported in China Updated: 2020-01-19 15:18:39 KST

China has reported 17 new cases of a mysterious coronavirus on Sunday, the weekend before the Lunar New Year holiday when hundreds of millions of people travel around the country.
Authorities said the additional cases broke out in the city of Wuhan, which has been regarded as the epicenter of the outbreak.
Out of the new cases, three people are said to be in severe condition.
The previously unknown virus strain has caused strong concern, as it shows similarities to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, or SARS, which claimed nearly 650 lives across mainland China and Hong Kong in the early 2000s.
The virus has so far infected 62 people in Wuhan.
Two people have died from organ damage caused by the virus.
